Skanda Shashti in Kadavul, 2012

Today we celebrated the final day of Skanda Shasthi, honoring lord Kartikkeya, first renunciate and master of Kundalini yoga. A time to turn inward and connect with Lord Skanda's lightening-fast shakti.

Saivites consider it most important to live near a Siva temple, and we build one wherever we find ourselves in the world. This is a most meritorious act, earning blessings in this life and the next.
